OK... We have done lots of things with the iPod's camera. HDR... Check. 720p HD photos... Check. Well, there still is one major imperfection with HDR. With unnatural lighting the HDR produces images with white noise (Sometimes the nonHDR creates an image with black noise). If you don't know what noise is, it's also called grains. Noise/grains are the little tiny dots (most of the time monochrome colored, black and white; but sometimes colored; The iPod produces monochrome noise) that overlay a picture and don't make it look nice. Well, fact is that all cameras can suffer from this, even 1000 dollar DSLR cameras. So I'm going to link to a website, LifeHacker, that has a tutorial on how to remove this from your photos. Get the free version of the app (community version), it works well. http://lifehacker.com/359120/remove-noise-and-grain-from-photos-with-noiseware-ce Follow the steps there. The downside to this is that there is no native application that does this for the iPhone (Correct me if I'm wrong, I haven't seen one), so this has to be done on a desktop. It will produce clearer images. EDIT: Added 2 photos for comparison to show you what noise is, and how it can get in the way of clarity. The second one is filtered (also says that in the file name).
